my first pic
I am processing video right now. Will see if it works.
Sorry about it taking so long to get here. Had some affairs to get in order first.
Where are the details
You made quick work of that mod. How was the process?
What software did you use to take that picture?
If that is a raw image of the moon, I must say that your modded webcam is FAR better then what the stupid POS I bought for 6x as much is capable of doing! I suspect that you may have stacked a couple of images though.
What are the plans with the video?
OK - so you have to take the lens out (I am gonna try to use it with it in later).
With the camera pointed at you, there is a hole on the right - a screw inside - remove it and carefully open the camera.
Carefully pull out the ccd pcb.
turn the lens stack bezel (the thing with the wite ring) ccw unltil it comes off of the lens stack collar.
Now, the lens housing can be pulled out of the bezel (see pic if lens housing above).
Take film canister (fugi white can works best). Cut bottom out of can - cut the middle out of the lid.
glue lid to white ring on bezel. if you use a normal film can you may need epoxy. You want to glue it so you can attach the can to it. See pic above.
re-assemble camera with out the lens housing in it (this is the trickest part - be careful)
Attach flim can
Camera should fit in a standard scope (you might want to test this first with the film can).
Software used. I used the stuff that came with the camera. The moon image is a still pick I got. Its been reduced in resolution and color so I could post it - but it looks about the same unless you zoom in.
For vid processing I DLed COAA's astrovideo (free).
Its not very good for moon shots, but it allows you to take video and stack images. This is great for fainter objects
I have not used it with the camera yet - weather sucky.
Oh yeah - scope: Celestron 4.5" newt with malfunctioning (user error) NexStar system
Shitty camera + shitty scope = nice pics
